WINDERMERE CRONIN & CAPLAN REALTY GROUP WELCOMES DE LA SALLE INTERNS
De La Salle North Catholic High School and Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group
partner in a mutually beneficial internship program
PORTLAND, OR. – September 20, 2012 – Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group is proud to welcome high school interns from De La Salle North Catholic High School. Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group, a leader in residential real estate in the Portland metropolitan area and the North Oregon Coast for more than thirty years is thrilled to have added four interns to their staff. The interns, all in high school, are spread out among three of Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group’s offices and provide the equivalent of a full-time position for the duration of the school year. The interns will gain valuable job experience and the money paid for the interns will assist in tuition costs at De La Salle North Catholic High School.
“We are pleased to participate in this program and feel as though it is a win-win situation,” says Brian Allen, President of Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group. De La Salle North Catholic High School leases the students, ensuring they get to work on time, in proper business attire, and with a professional attitude. In turn, Windermere provides a professional setting that teaches new skills that prepare these students for the real world.
Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group not only sees this program as an excellent investment, but also as an opportunity to continue their commitment to the community of Portland and surrounding areas by supporting education and encouraging professional growth.
